Merry Monday July Challenge, Week 4

Wow, hard to believe we are on week 4 of the July Challenge at Merry Monday!  There have been so many fabulous entries in the challenge.  You have all month to enter and you can enter as often as you wish!  With July going by so quickly, you know the holiday season will be here before you know it!

I played with more new products for my card this week!  All I need is new stamps and a little bling to make my weekend complete!  The majority of my card is completed with the upcoming Frosted line of papers and coordinating embellishments.

My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Deconstructing Jen.

My inside sentiment is from one of the new hostess stamps, Wintery Wishes.  This set has some really cute penguins, which will be featured on a card soon!

  1. Beautiful card with warm colors. The snowflakes are all so pretty and I really like the inside sentiment...makes one warm on a cold, winter day.

  2. Love the card - the colors are so fun and I love them together. Does the new paper have sparkles on it - like maybe it is chamois color - it looks sort of sparkly! I love how you made it fit the challenge. I am going to a CTMH open house this weekend - can't wait to see these papers up close and personal. Plus, I can't wait to see the penguins! It is so hot out here and this made me feel just a few degrees cooler!
